Why work with Citrus-Lime?

Put simply, we are a Cloud-based Software/Tech company operating within the Outdoor and Lifestyle sector. We are changing the markets we serve because we are ambitious and determined to achieve our objectives. This, in turn, has lead us to be a highly profitable and commercially well-run business.

We are a small, high-growth business where necessity has us move quickly, make smart choices and carve a clear niche into which our forward-thinking, commercially relevant products and services are welcomed. The pace at which we progress, we believe, makes us an exciting and engaging business to work for.

Having developed long-standing and meaningful partnerships with all areas of retail, we have become a key contributor to the modernisation and growth within the specialist industries we serve.

We have expanded to a team of more than 50 diverse colleagues and contributors, but growth became rapid in late 2016 when we committed to writing all of our software in-house, resulting in our fully integrated, End-to-End Cloud retail solution.

Looking into the future, having started to recreate our Cycle market successes within new verticals (particularly the Outdoor sector) and beginning to show clear signs of progress outside the UK, our ambitions and expectations have evolved and we are set to grow again.

There is still work to be done within the Cycle industry, but the opportunities are clear within similar verticals where the challenge for business owners to adapt to the needs of the modern consumer are apparent and can be met confidently by our solutions.
